OrriCK OF Tuic Mayoiv,|^ 
GiiK^ujo, November 12, 1924.) 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the Cilij of 
Chicago: 

(iKNTi.KMKN — I liorewitli riitiirn, without my ap- 
proval, ail order passed by your Honorable Body on 
October 31, 192-1, and appearing on page 3923 ol' the 
Journal of the Proceedings ot the City Council of 
that (late, directing the removal of the water meter 
from the premises located at 3006-08 Calumet av- 
enue. 

'My approval is withheld for the reason that this 
order is in derogation of Section 4136 of The Chi- 
cago Municipal Code of 1922 which requires six-flat 
buildings to be metered, and this Council order, not 
liaving the legal effect of amending said ordinance, 
must therefore fail of its purpose. 

I attach hereto communication from the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works on the subject-matter and 
desire it, together with report from the Bureau of 
Engineering, referred to therein, to be made a part 
of my veto message. 

Yours respectfully, 

(Signed) William E. Dever, 

Mayor.

said veto message: 

Department op Public Works 
Chicago, November 6, 1924 

Honorable William E. Dever, Mayor: 

My Dear Mr. Mayor— I enclose a letter I have just 
received from the Bureau of Engineering, regarding 
premises at 3006-08 Calumet avenue. 

An order was passed by the City Council at the 
last meeting (introduced by Alderman Louis Ander- 
son), directing the removal of the water meter at 
these premises. 

You will note that, under the ordinance, this place 
should be metered, and I therefore suggest that the 
order be vetoed at the coming meeting of the City 
Council. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) A. A. Sprague, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 



Chicago, November 5, 1924. 

Mr. John Ericson, City Engineer: 

Dear Sir — Replying to your letter of November 3rd 
in regard to an order passed at the meeting of the 
City Council October 31st, directing the removal of 
a water meter at 3006-08 Calumet avenue, beg to 
advise this meter was installed October 5, 1923, for 
the reason that the frontage assessment of this build- 
ing was $51.50 gross. 

This is a six-flat building and on account of the 
assessment being over $40.00 it comes within Section 
4136 of the ordinances requiring the water to a 
premises of this character to be metered. 

This council order should be vetoed.

Driveways: Amendment of the Regulations Governing 
Construction of Driveways. 

The Mayor submitted the following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, November 12, 1924.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without my ap- 
proval, an ordinance passed by your Honorable Body 
on October 31, 1924, and appearing on page 3917 of 
the Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council 
of said date, amending Section 3566 of The Chicago 
Municipal Code of 1922. 

■My approval is withheld for the reasons that this 
measure contemplates an unusual and unnecessary 
curtailment of the authority now vested in the Com- 
missioner of Public Works over the streets of the 
City, and entails undue inconvenience and financial 
hardship upon residents who desire to build and 
maintain garages and driveways in connection with 
their homes. 

I attach hereto communication addressed to me 
with relation to the matter from the Commissioner 
of Public Works and desire to make it part of my 
veto message. 

The ordinance is therefore returned with the sug- 
gestion that it be re-referred to your Committee on 
Local Industries, Streets and Alleys for further con- 
sideration. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) William E. Dever, 

Mayor. 

The following communication was submitted with 
said veto message: 

Department of Public Works, | 
Chicago, November 7, 1924. 

Hon. William E. Dever, Mayor: 

Dear Sir — On October 31st the City Council passed 
the following ordinance to amend Section 3566, Chi- 
cago Municipal Code of 1922: 

"Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. That Section 3566 of The Chicago 
Municipal Code of 1922 be and the same is hereby 
amended to read as follows : 

"3566. Driveways not to be constructed with- 
out order of the City Council.) No person, firm 
or corporation shall hereafter construct, build, 
establish or maintain driveways over, across or 
upon public sidewalks without first obtaining an 
order so to do from the City Council and a per- 
mit so to do, as hereinafter provided. All coun- 
cil orders for driveways shall contain the name 
of the person, firm or corporation making appli-

'i 



cation, and the location and dimensions of the 
proposed driveway. Council orders providing 
for driveways over sixteen feet wide shall be re- 
ferred to the committee of the City Council 
having charge of matters concerning streets and 
alleys." 

Section 2. This ordinance shall be in force and 
effect from and after its passage." 

This ordinance would revoke the authority now 
vested in the Commissioner of Public Works to issue, 
without order by the City Council, permits for drive- 
ways which do not exceed sixteen (16) feet in width 
and do not involve elevation or depression of exist- 
ing sidewalks which they may cross. It also elimi- 
nates the present provision of the Code that the Com- 
missioner of Public Works may issue such permits 
without requiring that bonds be filed. 

If this amendment becomes effective, the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works will not have authority to 
issue permits for driveways of any kind until a coun- 
cil order shall be passed in each instance, and bonds 
In the sum of ten thousand dollars must be filed and 
maintained in force during the existence of all drive- 
ways leading into residential property. 

I believe this measure contemplates an unusual 
and unnecessary curtailment of the authority of the 
Commissioner of Public Works over the streets of 
the City, and entails undue inconvenience and finan- 
cial hardship upon residents who desire to build and 
maintain garages and driveways in connection with 
their homes. 

I have discussed this ordinance with Alderman Jo- 
seph 0. Kostner, Chairman, Committee on Local In- 
dustries, Streets and Alleys, and it is his expressed 
desire to reconsider the same with a view to modi- 
fication. 

I therefore recommend that the said ordinance be 
vetoed and referred to committee for further con- 
sideration. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) A. A. Sprague, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 

Alderman WoodhuU moved to reconsider the vote 
by which said vetoed Ordinance was passed. 
The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Woodhull moved to refer said vetoed ordi- 
nance to the Committee on Local Industries, Streets 
and Alleys. 

The motion prevailed. 



Veto. 



Amendment of the Zoning Ordinance (Area Bounded by 

a Line 125 Feet North of Farwell Av.; a Line 125 

West of Ridge Boul.; a Line 125 Feet South of 

Farwell Av.; and N. Western Av.). 

The Mayor submitted the following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor, ( 
Chicago, November 12, 1924. j 

To the Honorable^ the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without my ap- 
proval, ordinance passed by your Honorable Body on 
October 31, 1924, and appearing on pages 3973-4 of 



the Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council 
of said date, amending the Zoning Ordinance in the 
area bounded by a line 125 feet north of Farwell av- 
enue; a line 125 feet west of Ridge boulevard; a line 
125 feet south of Farwell avenue; and North Western 
avenue, by changing all the First Volume District 
symbols and indications so shown on Volume District 
Map No. 5 in said area, to those of a Second Volume 
District. 

My approval is withheld for the reason that this 
change would permit of the erection of large apart- 
ment buildings on Farwell avenue where green- 
houses, new two-family buildings and residences 
conform to the regulations as the property is now 
zoned. 

The Chairman of the Board of Appeals recom- 
mends that this ordinance be vetoed, and I therefore 
withhold my approval thereto. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) William E. Dever, 

Mayor. 

Alderman Woodhull moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed ordinance was passed. 
The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Woodhull moved to refer said vetoed ordi- 
nance to the Committee on Buildings and Zoning. 
The motion prevailed. 



Veto. 

Amendment of the Zoning Ordinance (Area Bounded by 

Estes Av.; Ridge Boul.; Greenleaf Av.; and the 

Alley Next West of Ridge Boul.). 

The Mayor submitted the following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor, ( 
. Chicago, November 12, 1924. j 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without my ap- 
proval, ordinance passed by your Honorable Body on 
October 31, 1924, and appearing on page 3972 of the 
Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council of 
said date, amending the Zoning Ordinance in the area 
bounded by Estes avenue, Ridge boulevard, Greenleaf 
avenue and the alley next west of Ridge boulevard, 
by changing all the Residence District symbols and 
indications so shown on Use District Map No. 5 and 
all the First Volume District symbols and indica- 
tions so shown on Volume District Map No. 5 in the 
area bounded by Estes avenue, Ridge boulevard; 
Greenleaf avenue; and the alley next west of and 
most nearly parallel to Ridge boulevard, to those of 
a Commercial District and Second Volume District, 
respectively. 

My approval is withheld for the reason that this 
amendatory ordinance would permit the erection of 
garages, filling stations and one-story buildings in a 
neighborhood now developed with fine homes which 
would, no doubt, greatly reduce the value of the 
latter. 

The Chairman of the Board of Appeals recom- 
mends that this ordinance be vetoed, and I therefore 
withhold my approval thereto. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) William E. Dever, 

Mayor.

Office op the Mayor,( 
Chicago, November 12, 1924. j 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without my ap- 
proval, ordinance passed by your Honorable Body on 
October 31, 1924, and appearing on pages 3977-8 of 
the Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council 
of said date, amending the Zoning Ordinance in the 
area bounded by a line 250 feet north of East 47th 
street; the alley next west of Indiana avenue; a line 
175 feet north of East 47th street; and Indiana av- 
enue, by changing all the Apartment District symbols 
and indications so shown on Use District 'Map No. 
31 in said area, to those of a Commercial District. 

My approval is withheld for the reason that this 
change is discriminatory and would permit of the 
erection of a building for commercial purposes in a 
block now wholly residential in character. 

I attach hereto a communication addressed to Hon. 
Allen B. Pond, Chairman of the Board of Appeals, 
from the Secretary of said Board suggesting the veto 
of this and two other ordinances amending the Zon- 
ing Ordinance and further suggestions; also commu- 
nication from the Chairman to me recommending 
that these ordinances be vetoed, which I desire to be 
made part of my veto message.

Honorable William E. Dever, Mayor: 



: Zoning,] 
10, 1924.} 



Dear Sir — I transmit herewith a report on three 
ordinances amending the Zoning Ordinance. 

I recommend that these ordinances be vetoed and 
that the Council be urged to follow a procedure per- 
taining to future amending ordinances that will in- 
sure an adequate hearing.

Respectfully submitted,

Allen B. Pond, 
Chairman. 



Honorable Allen 
Appeals: 

D|':aii Sir — Of tlu! ordinances which were passed 
l)y the Council on the 3lHt of October, 1924, the fol- 
lowing appear not to be to the best interests of the 
neigliltorlioods involved, and should not be permitted 
to slaniJ : 

Pamphlet No. 83, page 1. 

Subject — Amending the Zoning Ordinance. 
(Area hounded by Estes avenue; Ridge boulevard; 
Grcenleaf avenue; and the alley next west of Ridge 
boul(!vard.) 

This amendment changes tho block on the west side 
of Ridge boulevard from residences to commercial. 
A petition of a great majority of owners in the block, 
those across the alley and those across the street 
opposing this ordinance was filed with the City Clerk 
October 22, 1924. The block with the exception of 
one vacant lot is occupied by fine houses and there 
are no business buildings in it. This ordinance 
would permit the erection of a garage or filling sta- 
tion or one-story stores in the neighborhood now 
developed with fine homes which would, no doubt, 
greatly reduce the value of the latter. This block is 
ideally suited to residential use. 

Pamphlet No. 85, page 2. 

Subject — Amending the Zoning Ordinance. 
(Area bounded by a line 125 feet north of Farweil 
avenue; a line 125 feet south of Ridge boulevard; 
a line 125 feet south of Farweil avenue; and North 
Western avenue.) 

This ordinance changes the frontage along Farweil 
avenue, west of the ridge, from a First to a Second 
Volume District. The change would permit the erec- 
tion of large apartment buildings on this street. 
Farweil avenue in this locality is largely vacant and 
the improvements are greenhouses and new two- 
family buildings and residences. All of the build- 
ings in the street conform to the regulations as the 
property is now zoned. 

Pamphlet No. 85, page 4. 

Subject — Amending the Zoning Ordinance. 
(Area bounded by a line 250 feet north of East 
47th street; the alley next west of Indiana avenue; 
a line 175 feet north of East 47th street; and In- 
diana avenue.) 

The change contemplated by this ordinance is from 
apartment to commercial. The block as it is now 
zoned, except 47th street frontage, is an apartment 
district, and this ordinance provides that a 50-foot 
lot in the middle of the block which is adjoined on 
botli sides by residential buildings be changed to 
commercial. The buildings in the block are well 
back from the street. The ordinance would permit a 
new business building on this one 50-foot lot to 
come out to the sidew^alk. 

This ordinance is discriminatory. If business 
should be permitted on this lot it should be per- 
mitted in the entire block. 

Ninety-nine amendments to the maps of the Zon- 
ing Ordinance have been passed from the time of its 
passage to July of this year. A large number of 
these ordinances have made minor adjustments or 
have been brought about through the desires of the 
owners of the properties affected, and the need for 
such adjustments and changes is decreasing. 

One of the amendments was declared illegal by the 



Aovem'ber 12, 1924. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

court on the grounds that sufTucient notice was not 
given of the public hearing. 

Many amendments that were brought up have in 
the same period been rejected by the Council when 
it was learned that the people most affected by the 
change were opposed to it, and some that were 
passed were reconsidered in the light of objections 
of property owners who had no notice of the public 
hearings at the time that the ordinance was brought 
up. The situation seems to indicate that wider pub- 
licity should be given to pending amendments to the 
Zoning Ordinance in order that the owners of prop- 
erty may be given the opportunity to work out their 
problems and attend the public hearings. 



Respectfully submitted,

the refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used and 
requires refining, it shall be heated to a temperature 
of not over four hundred fifty (450) degrees Fahren- 
heit until all water and light oils have been driven 
off. At least ninety-eight and one-half (98%) per 



cent of the bitumen contained in the said refined 
asphalt which is soluble in carbon disulphide shall

(5%) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
be not less than one-half of the penetration before 
such heating, said penetration being determined as 
herein prescribed. The said refined asphalt shall 
have a ductility of not less than sixty (60) centi- 
meters at five (5) millimeters penetration deter- 
mined as herein prescribed, said ductility being 
determined by elongating a briquette, Dow form, of 
said refined asphalt at a uniform rate of five (5) 
centimeters per minute at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be used. 
At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux shall 
be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The flux shall 
have a speciflc gravity of not less than ninety-four 
one-hundredths (.94) and not more than one and ten 
one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit as compared with water at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit; and when tested in a Cleve- 
land open cup oil tester, it shall not flash below a 
temperature of three hundred and eighty (380) de- 
grees Fahrenheit; and when fifty (50) grams of the 
said flux is heated in an uncovered tin box five and 
one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter and three 
and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held 
at a temperature of three hundred and twenty-five 
(325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it 
shall not have lost over three (3) per cent by weight. 
The fiux shall have a penetration of not less than 
thirty-five (35) millimeters, the penetration being 
made with a No. 2 needle weighted with fifty (50) 
grams acting for one second, the material being 
tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the wearing course 
shall be made from one of said refined asphalts or 
from a mixture of any two of said refined asphalts 
and said flux, if flux must be used, provided that the 
mixture of refined asphalts shall contain equal parts 
of each of the refined asphalts; and that the said 
asphalt cement shall contain not less than sixty (60) 
per cent by weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. 
The said asphalt cement shall be made by mixing 
and heating the said refined asphalt or asphalts and 
the said flux in a kettle at a temperature not lower 
than two hundred and fifty (250) degrees Fahren- 
heit and not higher than three hundred and fifty 
(350) degrees Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be 
thoroughly agitated when hot by steam, air or mech- 
anical means until the said mixture has become

meters in diameter and three and one-half (3%) 
centimeters in depth and is held at a temperature 
of three hundred twenty-five (325) deprces Fahren- 
heit for five (5) hours, then it shall have lost not 
more than three (3) per cent by weight, and the 
penetration, determined as herein prescribed, shall 
he not less than one-half of the penetration before 
such heating. A briquette, Dow form, of the said 
asphalt cement of the consistency as used in this 
improvement shall have a ductility determined as 
herein prescribed, of not less than twenty (20) 
centimeters. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be made 
by intimately mixing, while hot, the said granite 
or trap rock, the said sand, the said asphalt 
cement and the said levigated stone. The said 
granite or trap rock, the said sand and the said 
asphalt cement shall be heated separately to a tem- 
perature of not less than three hundred (300) degrees

the refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used 
and requires refining, it shall be heated to a tem- 
perature of not over four hundred fifty (450) de- 
grees Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have 
been driven off. At least ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent of the bitumen contained in the 
said refined asphalt which is soluble in carbon 
disulphide shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight reduc- 
tion of asphaltic petroleum until the refined asphalt 
has a consistency not softer than seven (7) milli- 
meters penetration and not harder than two and 
one-half (2%) millimeters' penetration, the pene- 
tration being made with a No. 2 needle, weighted 
with one hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) 
seconds on the material at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and 
one-half (98%) per cent of the said refined asphalt, 
so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box, five and 
one-half (51/2) centimeters in diameter and three and 
one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) de- 
grees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and the 
penetration of the residue thus obtained shall be not 
less than one-half ( % ) of the penetration before such 
heating, said penetration being determined as herein 
prescribed. The said refined asphalt shall have a 
ductility of not less than sixty (60) centimeters at 
five (5) millimeters penetration determined as here- 
in prescribed, said ductility being determined by 
elongating a briquette, Dow form, of said refined 
asphalt at a uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per 
minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. 

The fiux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The 
flux shall have a specific gravity of not less than 
ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than 
one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water 
at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hundred 
eighty (380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty 
(50) grams of the said flux is heated in an un- 
covered tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters 
in diameter and three and one-half (3^/2) centi- 
meters in depth and is held at a temperature of 
three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahren- 
heit for five (5) hours, then it shall not have lost 
over three (3) per cent by weight. The flux shall 
have a penetration of not less than thirty-five (35) 
millimeters, the penetration being made with a No. 
2 needle weighted with fifty (50) grams acting for 
one (1) second, the material being tested at seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit.

MAYOR. 



Veto. 



Amendment of the Zoning Ordinance (Area Bounded by 

Berteau Av.; N. Rockwell St.; Belleplaine Av.; and 

the North Branch of the Chicago River). 

The Mayor submitted the following veto message: 

Office op the Mayor, | 
Chicago, December 3, 1924. \ 

To the Honorable the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return without my ap- 
proval an ordinance passed by your Honorable Body 
on November 19, 1924, and appearing on pages 4108 
and 4109 of the Journal of the Proceedings of the 
City Council of that date, whereby the zoning ordi- 
nance is amended by changing the uses in the district 
bounded by Berteau avenue, North Rockwell street, 
Belleplaine avenue and the North Branch of the 
Chicago River. 

My reason for withholding my approval is that the 
neighborhood in which the block that is altered is 
located is residential and much public sentiment 
against the change was manifested at the time the 
ordinance was under consideration. If the block is 
to be changed at all, such change should be from an 
apartment to a commercial district and not to a 
manufacturing district, in order that the appropriate 
use of the neighborhood property should not be in- 
jured. 

I therefore recommend that the vote by which this 
ordinance was parsed be reconsidered and that the 
same should bo re-referred to the Committee on 
Buildings and Zoning for further deliberation and 
hearing thereon. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) " William E. Dever, 

Mayor. 

Alderman O'Toole moved to reconsider the vote by 
which said vetoed ordinance was passed. 
The motion prevailed. 

Alderman O'Toole moved to refer said ordinance to 
Ihe Committee on Buildings and Zoning.

Veto. 



Amendment of the Zoning Ordinance (Area Bounded by 

th(! Alley.s N(!xt North of Carroll Av.; N. Crawford 

Av.; the Alleys Next South of Carroll Av.; 

and N. Kildarc Av.). 

The Mayor submitted the following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor, 
Chicago, December 3, 1924. 

To the Honorable the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return without my ap- 
proval an ordinance passed by your Honorable Body 
on November 19, 1924, and appearing on page 4109 of 
the Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council of 
that date, whereby the zoning ordinance is altered in 
the district bounded by the alleys next north of 
Carroll avenue, North Crawford avenue, the alleys 
next south of Carroll avenue and North Kildare ave- 
nue. 

iMy reason for withholding my approval of this 
ordinance is that it changes both sides of Carroll 
avenue from a manufacturing district to a "resi- 
dential" district. The street in question is hemmed 
in on the south by Lake street and on the north by 
Kinzie street, directly north of which is located the 
large Crawford avenue yard of the Chicago & North- 
western Railroad. The three blocks which it is pro- 
posed to change are occupied principally by frame 
dwellings and apartments. The words "residential 
district" as used in this ordinance do not appear in 
the zoning ordinance, but would probably be con- 
strued to mean a single family residence district. 
The ordinance was introduced on June 18, 1924, and 
reported out from committee on November 12, 1924, 
and when it reached the Council it changed the prop- 
perty in question from a manufacturing district to 
a commercial district. When it passed on November 
19, 1924, the word "commercial" was changed to 
"residential." There are substantially no commercial 
uses in these three blocks, but the general tenden- 
cies of the neighborhood are to commercial uses. 
In any event, it is contrary to the spirit and intent 
of the zoning ordinance to make such a change to 
residential after it had been considered and recom- 
mended as a "commercial district." In my opinion a 
public hearing was not held on the ordinance in the 
form in which it was passed. 

I therefore recommend that the vote by which the 
said ordinance was passed be reconsidered and that 
the said ordinance be re-referred to the Committee 
on Buildings and Zoning for the purpose of further 
deliberation and a public hearing in accordance with 
the views expressed herein. 



Very truly yours.

William E. Dever, 

Mayor.

Veto. 



Amendment of the Zoning Ordinance (Area Bounded by 

the Alley Next North of W. Cullerton St.; S. Oakley 

Av.; the Alley Next South of W. Cullerton 

St.; and the Alley Next East of 

S. Western Av.). 

The Mayor submitted the following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, December 3, 1924. ( 

To the Eonorahle the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — I herewith return without my ap- 
proval an ordinance passed by your Honorable Body 
on November 19, 1924 and appearing on page 4110 
of the Journal of the Proceedings of the City Council 
of that date, whereby the zoning ordinance is 
amended in the district bounded by the alley next 
north of West Cullerton street, South Oakley avenue, 
the alley next south of West Cullerton street and the 
alley next east of South Western avenue. 

My reason for withholding my approval of said 
ordinance is that it proposes a change on West 
Cullerton street from South Oakley avenue to South 
Western avenue, whereby an apartment district will 
become a commercial district. . The property in 
question is practically all improved with apartments 
and dwellings, there being only one parcel of vacant 
land in the block. I am informed that there has 
been strong opposition in this neighborhood to the 
intrusion of commercial uses and that the change will 
be objectionable. 

I therefore recommend that the vote by which the 
said ordinance was passed be reconsidered and that 
the said ordinance be placed on file. 



Yours very truly.

Suggestions for a Municipally-ovvned and Municipally-

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was ordered published and referred to the 
Committee on Local Transportation: 

Henry M. Ashton,] 

Attorney and Counsellor-at-Law,1 

Chicago, December 3, 1924.J 

Hon. Wm. E. Dever, Mayor, and Members of the City 
Council of the City of Chicago: 

Dear Sirs — I note from the newspaper reports 
that the Transportation Committee is not confining 
itself to a consideration of the various plans sub- 
mitted for the solution of the traction question, but 
is carrying on further negotiations with the com- 
panies with a view to purchase by the City of the 
surface lines. 

I respectfully protest against any further nego- 
tiations with the companies looking to the purchase 
of the lines. The Mayor has submitted an affirm- 
ative program which I believe has real merit, as it 
deals with the question of rapid transit and sub- 
ways. 

I hereby submit for your consideration certain 
facts and suggestions regarding the surface trans- 
portation in Chicago : 

1. I believe we should not purchase the surface 
lines at all. We should simply permit them to 
operate until 1927, and in the meantime begin now 
to put on another better and cheaper form of trans- 
portation. The great increase of passengers handled 
by the Motor Bus throughout the United States and 
many cities of Europe has raised a serious question 
as to whether or not Chicago should completely 
motorize the surface transportation. 

2. The electric car is a rapidly disappearing 
method of transportation. A large number of Amer- 
ican cities have abandoned the street car and sub- 
stituted the motor bus. The total mileage of street 
car systems in the United States has decreased dur- 
ing the past few years. About two weeks ago the 
street car companies in New York City asked per- 
mission to abandon forty-six miles of tracks and 
substitute motor buses. 

3. A street car system sufTicient to carry a given

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL. 



Decembci' 3, 192/i. 



nuiiihci' oC pussoiif^ors costs about four times as 
mucli as a syslcin (if motor buses. The electric car 
is cumbersoirK! and iiicIasUc Operating on a fixed 
Irack, its service cannot be exl(Muied I'apidiy. Motor 
buses can be exIendfMJ and cliungcd (piickly. If a 
street car (rack is blockaded, I lie result is a block- 
ade of the \vhol(! line. Tiie motor bus passes around 
blockades. 

4. The experience of many cities shows that the 
motor bus economizes space and relieves congestion. 
For example in the double deck bus such as we 
have in Chicago streets, the number of square feet 
per passenger is 3%. In a Chicago street car, the 
number of square feet per seated passenger is 7%. 
With a louring car or iaxi, assuming an average of 
two passengers, which is slightly in excess of the 
actual average of passengers in the loop district of 
Chicago, the square feet occupied is forty. In other 
words, in the given number of square feet the motor 
bus will carry twice as many passengers as the 
street ear, and thirteen times as many passengers 
as the average taxi or touring car, and the ecenomy 
of space in the loop district is extremely important. 
In many cities of considerable size in this country, 
the bus has demonstrated its effectiveness in reliev- 
ing congestion. In Newark, N. J., a city of about 
300,000 inhabitants, when the street cars stopped 
last year, the whole transportation load was thrown 
upon I he motor buses, and it was found that other 
vehicle traffic speeded up, while the running time 
of the buses was cut down 20%. 

To board or leave a street car. the passenger must 
pass over the roadway used by moving vehicles. 
This hazard would be almost completely eliminated 
with the bus loading at the curb. Vehicles follow- 
ing street cars must stop in back of the street car 
when it takes on or discharges passengers. This 
causes great inconvenience and delay to both busi- 
ness and pleasure vehicles. With buses loading at 
the curb, the roadway would be left practically free 
for vehicle traffic to pass the bus. 

5. A street car in Chicago carries a dead weight 
of about 600 pounds per seated passenger. A bus 
line like that of the Chicago Motor Bus Company 
carries a dead weight of 157 pounds per passenger. 
The surface lines, with 3,400 cars, assuming that 
2/3 are in operation constantly, and 1/3 is put on 
only at the rush hours, is dragging around more 
than 2,500 tons of useless dead weight all day, year 
in and year out. 

6. The buses would almost wholly eliminate 
noise from our surface transportation. This is an 
important factor of the bus development. In several 
cities in the east where the bus has replaced the 
street car, the most important point urged by the 
citizens against the street car was that the noise 
was a nuisance, and prevented the enjoyment of 
residential property, and interfered with the sale 
of such property. So important is this matter of 
the elimination of noise, that I am sure that Chi- 
cago would be willing to pay a higher fare if neces- 
sary in order to have a practically noiseless system 
of surface transportation. However, it is not neces- 
sary for them to pay any more money than they do 
at present. 

7. With the motor buses replacing the street 
cars, Chicago would utilize more streets, and there 
would be a tendency to have all streets well paved. 
With the motor bus in general use thousands of 
people could get to see portions of the boulevards 
and parks Ihat now never see them. While the bus 
lines would operate mainly on streets now used by 
street cars, many new routes would be established 



on well pav(!d streets not now in use by the street 
cars. 

8. The motor bus would eliminate a great deal 
of injury which is now done to different utilities 
that have wires and tubes under ground, and suffer 
a great loss by means of electrolysis, which comes 
from tlie operation of the electric trolley in our 
streets. This is an extremely important item. 

9. With the motor bus lines extended to the out- 
lying districts, many subdivisions would be opened 
up at once. The failure on the part of the street 
car companies to extend their lines as provided in 
the 1907 ordinance lias resulted in retarding the 
growth of Chicago. If Chicago would establish a 
complele motor bus service, and give transportation 
to outlying districts, it would experience the 
greatest boom, and most rapid growth in its his- 
tory during the next few years. 

10. The Chicago Surface Lines have approxi- 
mately 3,400 cars. The Chicago Motor Bus Com- 
pany has carried during the past summer more 
than 1,100 passengers per coach each day on its 
north and south side lines. A large share of the 
traffic consisted of through-trip passengers. Only a 
small percentage of short-haul passengers patronized 
the motor bus. With city operated buses, the num- 
ber of passengers carried would no doubt average 
1,500 per day. It is certain that there would be a 
great increase in short-haul rides. The average 
number of passengers carried per day for the year 
1923 on the surface lines was 2,421,000, revenue 
passengers, and 1,786,000 transfer passengers, or a 
total of 4,331,000 passengers per day. Assuming 
that the motor bus would carry 1,500 passengers 
per day, it is apparent that 4,000 motor buses, 
assuming that only 3,000 were in constant use, could 
handle about 4,500,000 passengers per day. 

The approximate price of a bus is $8,000.00. If 
the City purchased 4,000 buses at a cost of $8,000.00 
each, the total cost would be $32,000,000. Garages 
would cost probably $5,000,000 more. In other 
words, we could completely motorize the City of 
Chicago for less than $40,000,000, the amount of cash 
we now have in the traction fund. 

If the City of Chicago were to purchase the sur- 
face lines at the present time, the cost of making the 
necessary extensions and changes to make a reason- 
ably good system of transportation would be at least 
$50,000,000, and probably $100,000,000. We would 
then have a system that would have to be discarded 
in a few years. If we completely motorized Chicago 
as far as the surface lines are concerned, we would 
not have to discuss the form of certificates to be 
given, because we would not have to give any certif- 
icates, and, of course, would not have to wait for a 
decision of the Supreme Court as to the legality of 
the certificates. The Schwartz plan could be used 
for the purpose of buying the elevated lines, if the 
owners will sell at a fair price, and these certificates 
could also be used for the construction of a rapid 
transit system such as proposed by the Mayor in his 
last transportation message. 

11. As to the cost of operation of a motor bus 
system, it is difficult to arrive at exact figures. The 
motor bus transportation is developing so rapidly, 
and making such great progress in so many ways, 
that it is a hard matter to keep up to date on the 
facts. There are, however, a number of places where 
buses have completely replaced street cars and the 
buses are operated at a profit on a five-cent fare. 
In some of the cities very careful accounts have 
been kept of the operating expenses, but in many 
cities the buses have been opei'ated in connection 



December 3, 1924. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



4121 



with the street car system, and the accounts have 
not been kept in such a way as to be instructive. 

I am sure that in view of the facts shown from 
other cities, Chicago could compl-etely motorize and 
operate at a profit on a seven-cent fare. The fare 
might be seven cents at first, and reductions could 
be made if warranted. When a passenger pays 
seven cents on a Chicago street car, more than 20% 
of the seven cents, or nearly 1 % cents goes to pay 
interest on bonded indebtedness and profits. With 
the City owning the lines, this 1% cents on each 
fare could be almost wholly saved at first, and 
eventually eliminated. 

12. As, to the actual cost of transportation of 
passengers by motor bus and by street car, there is 
very little difference. The operating costs are 
slightly more for the bus than for the street car, but 
this is more than off-set by the greater fixed charges 
for the street car. 

The traction companies want $162,000,000 for 
their property. Even if they are paid this sum, 
unless it is in cash, they will not surrender the lines 
to the City, but will insist upon private operation. 
If the companies would agree to surrender absolute 
control of the lines to the City, it is utterly absurd 
to assume that the people of Chicago would approve 
an ordinance providing for the payment of any sum 
approaching $162,000,000. I am sure that the people 
do not want any further contracts with the com- 
panies, because they have found that it is impossible 
to draw a contract that would not be disregarded 
and broken by the companies. I am further satis- 
fied that the people of Chicago do not want the 
antiquated street car system, but want the up-to- 
date motor bus, or trolley bus. 

During the past year the four out of six of our 
daily English speaking newspapers have repeatedly 
called attention to the fact that the electric car as a 
means of transporting passengers is becoming 
obsolete. One paper criticized the Mayor for 
"negotiating for the purchase of the street car sys- 
tem that the people don't want". 

The fact is that the electric car as a means of 
transporting passengers is hanging on by a slender 
thread all over the world. It has one point of 
superiority only over the motor bus. It can be over- 
loaded more readily. Experts may demonstrate to 
their own satisfaction that the street car should not 
be replaced by the bus, but the truth is, it is being 
replaced by the bus. Some objectors assert that the 
bus might do in a small city, but could not handle 
the traffic at the rush hours in a great city like 
Chicago. My investigations have convinced me that 
the people could be handled at the rush hours much 
faster with the bus than by the street cars. The bus 
could be loaded as in London and other great cities, 
not at street intersections, but between streets. Four 
or five buses could load and unload at the curb on 
each side of the street, and with 150 buses per hour 
in most of the streets, streaming north, south, east 
and west in the loop district at the rush hours, the 
traffic could be handled much quicker. 

At present in Chicago, the rate of traffic is slightly 
in favor of the street car. In some other places, it 
is claimed that the bus is faster than the street car. 

As to the operation of the buses in the winter 
time, they can be heated, and the top deck covered. 
Some difficulty would arise on account of passing 
certain viaducts, but all problems in connection with 
this could be met and solved. 

Some objectors to the bus assert that the bus is 
not as long lived as the street car, and the cost of 



maintenance and up-keep would be greater. The 
experience in Bradford, England, a city of 300,000 
inhabitants, where the city operates both the street 
car system, and the trolley bus system, has shown 
by careful accounts kept that the cost of repairs and 
maintenance on the street cars is slightly in excess 
of that on the trolley bus. 

It is certain that during the next few years the 
only improvement in our transportation system so 
far as the surface lines are concerned, must come 
from the motor buses. The companies will not build 
extensions and they will not add any new cars except 
possibly a few to replace those worn out. The sur- 
face line service lacks at least 25% of being ade- 
quate. 

If the Transportation Committee approves of the 
plan of Mayor Dever, as I think it should, and if it 
proceeds to carry out this plan, the people will not 
get relief for two or three years. In the meantime 
something should be done to take up the slack where 
the surface lines are failing to furnish adequate 
transportation. I suggest that an ordinance be passed 
providing that $5,000,000 of the Traction Fund be 
used for the purchase of 500 motor buses to be 
operated by the City at a seven-cent fare. Of course, 
it will be contended that the Traction Fund cannot 
be lawfully used for the purchase of buses. If pro- 
ceedings are brought to enjoin the use of the fund 
for such purpose, I have no doubt our Supreme 
Court would hold that the City may use the fund to 
put on buses. 

In other words, my suggestion to the City Council is: 

1. That no further negotiations be carried on 
with a view of purchase of the surface lines by the 
City. 

2. Proceed with the Mayor's plan, providing for 
the construction of a definite unit of transportation 
with Rapid Transit and subways. 

3. Put on 500 municipally owned and operated 
motor buses at the earliest date possible. After six 
months or one year we should put on 500 or 1,000 
more buses, and by February, 1927, when the fran- 
chises of the Street Railway Companies expire, we 
could be ready to put on a total of 4,000 buses and 
have a modern, trackless, noiseless, rapid, comfort- 
able and efficient motor bus service to completely 
replace that of the street car. 

I herewith submit for your consideration a list of 
cities in this country where the bus has completely 
replaced the street car; also, a list of cities where 
the bus has partially replaced the street car.

Hundreds of other cities are using buses for sup- 
plemental service. Street car companies vi^ho wish 
to discredit buses refer to Saginaw, Michigan, as an 
example of failure. The facts as to that city are as 
follows : 

About three years ago street cars were suddenly 
stopped by the private company as a club over the 
City Council for the purpose of securing more favor- 
able terms in a new franchise. This was before the 
modern bus was in general use. Jitney service, with 
Fords and Chevrolets, and other cars, were used to 
meet the emergency, and, of course, were not satis- 
factory. However, a large and increasing proportion 
of the tralTic in that city is now by bus. 

New York City has recently received proposals 
from the street car companies to abandon forty-five 
miles of the street car system and substitute buses. 
Mayor Hylan states that the street car is a fast dis- 
appearing method of transportation. 

Mr. J. A. Emery, a well-informed writer on trans- 
portation in a recent article in the magazine called 
"Bus Transporfation". states: 

"Prior to 1910, there were In the United States 
2,700 miles of track extension per year. Since 1915, 
actual shrinkage of 3,000 miles is recorded. 121 
electric street railways in the United States now 
have 1,200 buses in use or on order. One-half the 
street railway mileage in the United States in now 
unprofitable." 

Recently Mr. H. M. Addensell, representing a bond 
selling company, in an article in the Electric Rail- 
way Journal, stated as follows : 

"From January 1, 1922, to September 1, 1924, only 
about 3%% of the total utility bonds issued were 
for street railways. Some bond customers will not 
buy bonds at all if street railways are included as a 
part of utility property. Investment bankers will 
have nothing to do with street railway securities in 
cities of less than 100,000 population, and want 
franchise to include other means of transportation 
as well as street cars. They commend customer 
ownership because the stock sold to customers stands 
hplwpon tho bondholders and the company, (i. e. in 
event of inability to meet interest charges, the stock- 
holders would stand to lose first.)" 



'I'lie iDllowing Associated I'ress item from Chicago 
pap(>rs is significant: 

"lierlin, Nov. 4. — Contronled with increasing street 
ti-ai'lic, B(!r!iM lias decided to oi)erate automobile 
buses. 

"During 1925, 260 buses, running on fourteen dif- 
ferent lines, will be installed. The new cars will 
soat fifty-four persons each, and will have upper 
decks. 

"Manager Kaufmann of the Berlin Autobus Com- 
pany, who recently went to the United States to 
study city transportation conditions, believes the bus 
is the vehicle of the future for congested metro- 
politan districts." 



Construction of a New County Jail and Criminal Court 
Building. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with the copy of the report 
transmitted therewith, referred to the Committee on 
Finance: 

Committee on New County Jail and 
Criminal Court Building, 

Chicago, December 2, 1924. 

To the Honorable City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

I respectfully submit for the consideration of your 
honorable body a copy of the report of the Com- 
mittee on New County Jail and Criminal Court 
Building, of which I am Chairman, This committee 
is a part of a commission of citizens appointed by 
President Cermak of the Board of County Commis- 
sioners of Cook County in February of this year, 
with Colonel A. A. Sprague as Chairman, the pur- 
pose of the commission being a study of the needs 
of the County for improved housing facilities for its 
various departments. 

Our committee has directed its attention to the 
requirements of the County for a new Jail and 
Criminal Court building. Our report contains a 
record of the work done by our committee in an 
effort to arrive at a solution of this problem. I re- 
spectfully call your attention to the following major 
recommendations : 

i. That the County purchase the 62 acres at Cali- 
fornia boulevard and 26th street, occupied by the 
House of Correction and belonging to the City, for 
cash, upon the best terms possible, and for the pur- 
pose of using the facilities there now with additional 
equipment for a new County Jail, and for the 
erection of a new Criminal Court building. 

2. That the House of Correction be moved to the 
400 acre City Farm on the County line and Joliet 
road, and that it be improved with the necessary 
buildings and equipment. 

It will be seen that the plan proposed involves 
action on the part of your honorable body authoriz- 
ing the sale to Cook County of the Bridewell prop- 
erty and the development of facilities for the hous- 
ing of city prisoners at the City Farm. 

The Board of County Commissioners has already 
authorized a committee of its members to enter into 
negotiations with the City Council in connection 
with this matter, and requested me to initiate the 
proceedings. 

It is our hope that a proposal for a new Jail and 
Criminal Court Building may be submitted to the

Contract with the Chicago Daily News Co. for Mainte- 
nance of a Stairway on Certain Property. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with an order, etc., trans- 
mitted therewith, referred to the Committee on Local 
Industries, Streets and Alleys : 

Department of Lav^^,) 
Chicago, December 1. 1924.] 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — We send herewith draft of an order 
authorizing the Mayor and the City Clerk to enter 
into a contract with the Chicago Daily News Com- 
pany, whereby the City is granted the right to main- 
tain its stairway as at present built along the dock 
line east of the river on the north side of Madison 
street, and the Chicago Daily News Company is given 
the right upon sixty days' notice to remove that 
portion of the stairway which is on its property. 
The reasons for submitting this to your honorable 
body are as follows : 

The City began condemnation proceedings in 1888 
for the purpose of widening the river at Madison 
street in contemplation of the construction of a new 
bridge at that point. After the institution of these 
proceedings there were such other proceedings and 
developments that in 1913 an agreement was reached, 
and an ordinance was passed by the City Council by 
which the Mayor and City Clerk were authorized and 
directed to deed a strip of land alongside the dock 
line to one William V. Kelley and the latter was to 
enter into an agreement granting an easement in 
perpetuity to the City for the purposes of a pas- 
senger landing or dock. (See Council Journal, July 
30, 1913, pages 1973-1975). These instruments were 
duly drawn and the agreement was entered into. 
Subsequently William V. Kelley leased his property 
for 198 years to the Chicago Daily News Company, 
and these covenants went along with the land. 

When the City built the new bridge at Madison 
street a stairway was constructed from the street 
down to the level of the dock. This stairway is 
partly on the property in question. The Chicago 
Daily News Company does not require the space at 
present and is willing to leave it there until such 
time as it needs the property, but in order to avoid 
the loss of its rights by prescription it is asserting its 
ownership. To this end it has begun a suit of eject- 
ment, which is pending but which will be dismissed
